Dinosaurs Alive! at Dorney ParkSubmitted by Nick on Sunday, August 26, 2012 09:15
Dinosaurs Alive! is almost identical to the version at Kings Island, which Theme Park Tourist reviewed in 2011. However, it is on a slightly smaller scale, featuring 37 life-size animatronic dinosaurs produced by Canadian firm Dinosaurs Unearthed. Guests have to pay an additional upcharge to experience the attraction.
Each of the dinosaurs in the exhibit is covered in skin-like materials and feature realistic movements. Two of the models featured in Dinosaurs Alive! are controllable by guests via interactive consoles, which show how scientists believe they moved their arms, tail, mouth and eyes. The largest model on show is the Ruyangosaurus, which reach a height of almost 40 feet and a length of 72 feet.
